Nagambie OPM - Supporting Variety Victoria

#1 Postby Weairy » Sat Nov 09, 2019 2:39 pm

Hi everyone,

***PLEASE NOTE: POSTPONED TO 31st of October (Melb Cup Weekend)***

A little way off, but I’d love to get as much support for this event as possible.

May 2020, Nagambie Rifle Club will hold a prize meeting, hosted by the VRA Wellsford Range.

This event will be held in support of Variety, The Children’s Charity. For anyone that doesn’t know about Variety and the amazing work they do, I’ll explain. Variety supports Aussie kids in need, whether disadvantaged socially, economically or physically. Their efforts provide support to those that really need it, from Liberty wheelchair swings, to Sunshine Coaches and Wigs for Kids, their work is extremely important to the wellbeing of many young Aussies. Because of this, we have made the decision to donate all profits of the event straight to Variety Victoria.

The event will be held in Wellsford on the 2nd of May 2020. We are aiming to hold this prize meet all on Hexta Targets, a first for the Wellsford range.

We will have some awesome prizes on offer, including a new Barnard action, Ken Noye stock (dressed in a one-off Variety paintjob) and Krieger barrel.

Additionally, we are also planning to hold a social evening after the shoot, including live music, catering etc.

We are in discussions also to hold an additional prize meeting on the Sunday, hosted by another club/DRA; we would be very keen to hear from anyone who would be willing to help us on this one.

More details will be confirmed in the new year, but I would really love to see a great turnout in support of a very worthy cause. Nagambie is only a small club, but we plan to make a big event and really bring it home for Variety.

Hope to see everyone there.

Hi all,

An update on this prize meeting!

The Vic Veterans will be holding a Sweepstakes Shoot on the Sunday; 15 Shots at 600 & 700 Yards. All profits will be donated to Variety. It would be great to see everyone there for both days of shooting.

More details to come - keep an eye on the VRA Website.

Hi all,

Another note - we will be hosting a Saturday night social event, with live music and catering. This would be a great opportunity to come and stay the weekend, enjoy a great meal and catch up with everyone.
$30.00 per head, two course professionally catered roast meal (and more than you’ll be able to eat!).

If we could please get an indication of who might be coming, that’d be great. Please email me (josh@gvsecurityfencing.com.au)

After today’s decision by the VRA to postpone the Queens, we wish to advise that a decision will be made regarding our prize meeting by Tuesday 14th of April, whether we postpone or go ahead, due to the current COVID-19 situation.

In the event that the we do not go ahead at this date, the raffle will also be postponed/extended, due to the fact that raffle tickets are also tied to entry fees for the meeting.

Could anyone with tickets in their possession, please withhold them. If any tickets have been sold, we will gladly refund money, as we have such a high value of prizes, we need to make this a profitable raffle for the sake of the charity and without the Queens, this will be difficult to achieve.


Regards

If you leave the decision date to mid April and then go ahead with the event it would only leave two weeks to sell tickets. That would be an issue to get them sold to the general rank and file in Rifle Clubs.

Hi All,

IMPORTANT NOTICE

THIS EVENT IS NOW RESCHEDULED TO THE 31st OF OCTOBER (CUP WEEKEND)

The raffle will now be drawn at the VRA Queens meeting, as we are relying on the queens to help sell additional tickets and due to the current state of affairs, it is extremely difficult to generate ticket sales at this time.

Hope this works for everyone.
